Ryan McGee, Upper Sixth organised for two alumni to come in and share their advice on the art of public speaking. Mike Passfield from Greenwood Financial Planning: http://www.greenwoodfinancialplanning.co.uk/our-team/and Stuart Bazley, a member of the Bar and Professor of Law at a leading London Law school.
They held two sessions. The first session entailed presentations on tips and tricks on how to speak in public. It was an interactive session to aid with public speaking ability and confidence. They provided an insight, anecdotes and advice from their professions. In between the two sessions some students prepared a presentation for the second session. The second session was a mixture of presentations from students, putting the alumni’s advice into practice, and individual and general feedback from these presentations.
These sessions will help the Upper Sixth going into university and the world of work where speaking in public is essential and also the Lower Sixth because of the oral assessment areas in various subjects, upcoming interviews etc.
